    Ah! It might be easier to metaphorize ( sorry made up word), the other way round. Yellow on Black. There seems to be a startling amount of racial prejudice in China! https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...cans-guangzhou
    It is not unlike the little appreciated dark prejudice in India where darker siblings can be discriminated against. https://openscholarship.wustl.edu/cg..._globalstudies

    Tim, I can't open your second link

    https://openscholarship.wustl.edu/cg..._globalstudies

    it just exits without opening on clicking and displays nothing if I post the address directly. Shame beacuse I was interested to read it.

    The China one doesn't surprise me. We visited China in 2017 and they made a big thing about their 55 different ethnic minorities but it was obvious that they were really under strict control. We were told then that there were 160 million surveillance cameras installed across China with plans to install another 300+ million within the next two years. Big Brother is definitely watching you in China.

    As it is a lovely evening we decided to BBQ some home made burgers. The queen wasp that thought a BBQ was a good place to start building a nest got BBQ'd before the burgers!! The one in the downstairs loo just got sprayed with wasp killer. There are dozens of them around all looking for nest sites the one in the greenhouse escaped...........

    Sorry don't know why.
    Here it is again

    or https://openscholarship.wustl.edu/cg..._globalstudies

    These are the same URL from Google and Microsoft search engines. I first realised this reading AngloIndian novels confirmed by conversations with Expat Indian nurses, the white English nurses present were surprised by the problem. Racialism is alive and well across the globe, and I know I still am a part of that!

    All wasps at the moment are queens looking for a place to nest. I am not anti wasp totally but any looking round my house at the moment are killed.

    Been having a fire in the incinerator Yesterday/today must have a dozen queen wasps come flying out of the timber thrown in there - the smoke had made most of them 'dozy' so they were quickly deaded! Even had a couple around the wood pile shock out by the disturbance caused by the chain saw or axe.

    Last summer must have been very good for queen wasps - not seen as many for years or ever.

    The creepy part was that they were utterly silent, only the 3rd one screaming like a girl and trying to force his way out through the bars alerted me. The girl one just went back into the coop and had a kip.

    The link works in Edge but not in Firefox. Strange.
